The Ruselectronics holding - part of the Rostec State Corporation- has developed the Ataka-Trophy mobile cross-country complex to counter civilian drones, said Ruselectronics in a statement on Tuesday.
The system can identify a drone under the ‘friend or foe’ principle without an operator’s participation and automatically prevent the unauthorized penetration into the secured area, the statement said.
The system is mounted on an UAZ off-road vehicle and can be deployed within five minutes, the press office specified. As part of the holding "Ruselectronics" the project is being implemented by NPP Almaz (Saratov).
Attack-Trophy carries out radio frequency detection in a radius of 1 km and suppresses control channels in the frequency range that is used by UAVs for general civilian use - from 2 GHz to 6 GHz. Such drones can be used for unauthorised surveillance, transportation or dumping of compact cargo.
The mobile version allows using the complex in any territory without preliminary installation of equipment. For autonomous operation, the use of an electric generator with an external exhaust gas system, as well as any external power supply device for 220V, is provided. The complex is managed from the passenger compartment by a driver-operator.
A special feature of the new Ataka-Trophy complex is the ability to quickly, literally “off the wheels”, without preparing and installing equipment, organize the protection of various objects — industrial companies, critical infrastructure, as well as crowded places during public and sports events.
The system does not interfere with the operation of the surrounding communication and navigation equipment, including drones carrying out regular monitoring,” said Oleg Evtushenko, Executive Director of Rostec.
